Barlafumble will always be my favorite. Really, I swear!
When Nequissime dinged 85 and started in the Jade Forest, she struggled. Neq died. A LOT. Neq still isn't 90 and only gets about 5 minutes of attention per day only because of the Imperial Silk cooldown.
Roowen was a little easier. Oh, she died (apparently I am not meant to be a clothie), but she was a little stronger than Neq and I actually made it to 90 as a mage.
And now there's Drainee, my Windwalker Monklet. OH. MY. GAWDS. I freaking LOVE HER. Drainee dinged 85 the other day:
I probably won't mog her while she's leveling since she'll be switching gear from quest rewards.
